Lately, Conservatives lie themselves to sleep, this time its 'Family Research Council executive vice president Jerry Boykin' editing the tape of President Obama's speech on the murder of journalist James Foley, who died earlier this week by ISIS, a Muslims extremist terror organization. Jerry wants to spin the bottle and twist excerpts and play snippets of what President Obama said regarding terrorism and violence against not only James Foley, but Christians as well. As I have written before the like-minded Conservatives claim, Obama is anti-Christian and even claim he corroborates and sympathizes with Muslims. Although it isn't true, it sure fires the Conservative base up.
Even though it isn't true, a great majority of Conservatives are impressionable and believe anything a "figure of authority" tells them. Of course, this isn't the wisest decision. Because listening to liars fills your head with, well, lies. I've learned, sadly; anything with "family and Conservative" attached to a right-wing message isn't a factually accurate one. So, the fact that these Conservatives edit tapes to make it appear as though Obama said something he didn't say is sickening, albeit predictable. A number of Conservatives get their news through Conservative shows, and if that information is manipulated to fit a certain narrative, you the listener are ill informed. And not only misinformed but angry at the Obama Administration because you think they said something they did not say. The Revisionist Christian Movement is like a sleeper terrorist cell that is wrecking havoc on Christians who want to serve God in truth. Instead, they twist the meaning of the Scriptures and attempt to tie the Bible, the Second Amendment, and the American flag together. The other day a Conservative outright said God wrote the U.S. Constitution. I almost bit my tongue. Facepalm, what?!? You see they try so hard to tie the Bible to the Constitution that they are willing to claim God wrote it. In case you're confused, it's not true, God did not write the U.S. Constitution. The Bible is God-breathed, and that's it, there is no other book God inspired.
So, ask yourself why would they lie, why would Conservative revisionist edit the president's speech? Because they want you to believe, something is true even though it isn't true. Friend, that's demonic not Christ-like. These Conservatives claim honor and patriotism, or an obsession with patriotic religiosity. But not just any religion no not the Christian religion, but the Religion that claims God choose the white race and the blacks as slaves. The horrendous manipulation of God's Word is because of people like Jerry, of course, he's not the only one. Let's for a second briefly focus on something; Jesus Christ wasn't white, sorry to burst your hateful bubble, but he wasn't white. As a matter of fact, his complexion resembled closer to those illegal immigrants they, Conservatives, want to light on fire. Ouch, I know that hurt.
Here is what Obama said about ISIS:
"They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion.
Obama has also denounced the persecution of Christians in the Mideast in past remarks:
As ISIL has marched across Iraq, it has waged a ruthless campaign against innocent Iraqis. And these terrorists have been especially barbaric towards religious minorities, including Christian and Yezidis, a small and ancient religious sect. Countless Iraqis have been displaced.
And again: We will continue to work with the international community to deal with the growing humanitarian crisis in Iraq. Even as our attention is focused on preventing an act of genocide and helping the men and women and children on the mountain, countless Iraqis have been driven or fled from their homes, including many Christians.
National Prayer Breakfast:
More broadly, I’ve made the case that no society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all its peoples, including religious minorities, whether they’re Ahmadiyya Muslims in Pakistan, or Baha’i in Iran, or Coptic Christians in Egypt. And in Syria, it means ensuring a place for all people -- Alawites and Sunni, Shia and Christian.
This weekend, Michelle and I extend our best wishes to members of the Orthodox Christian community here in America and around the world as they observe Holy Friday and the Feast of the Resurrection. For millions of Orthodox Christians, this is a joyful time. But it’s also a reminder of the sacrifice Christ made so that we might have eternal life. His decision to choose love in the face of hate; hope in the face of despair is an example we should always strive to follow. But it’s especially important to remember this year, as members of the Orthodox community have been confronted with persecution and violence, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. For centuries, the region and the world has been enriched by the contributions of Orthodox communities in countries like Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. As a nation, we reaffirm our commitment to protecting universal human rights including the freedom of religion. And in this season of hope and restoration, we celebrate the transformational power of sacrificial love."(1).
